A License to Wed
Slowly but surely all of the wedding details are coming together. One of the wedding horror stories you hear from couples is that they forgot to get their wedding license. So Milton and I planned several weeks out to go and get it.
We had originally planned to get our license the day after I gave my speech since Milton was going to be in town. He had done the research. Since we are getting married right across the bridge, he went online to see what we would need.
We woke up that morning and I re-asked Milton if I needed a birth certificate or social security card. He called and asked them but they said all that was needed was a driver’s license. HOWEVER, they told Milton that because he lives in Indianapolis, we would have to get our marriage license in Indianapolis.
Which means a new trip needed to be planned! We planned a lunch date/marriage license get together. The process was very simple – show you driver’s license, pay your money and fill out a form. Most of the information was typical but then they asked the following questions:
Have you ever been adjudged to be out of unsound mind? If yes, has the adjudication been removed?
Are you related to the male applicant closer than second cousin?
Are you now under the influence of an alcoholic beverage?
Ar you now under the influence of a narcotic drug?
Luckily I passed the question with flying colors – and so did Milton. When asked if either of us had been married before or if we had kids, I am proud to say that no unknown love children or women from the past emerged.
Wedding dress – check. Marriage license – check. Shellin’ out a lot of money for everything else – check!!! Let the countdown begin – 10….. 9 (wait stop right there)! Nine more days…
